Beetle Mania Deluxe happens to be the online version of the land based slot that has become a favorite amongst punters ever since its release. Beetle Mania refers of course to the insect that is the main character and also pays tribute to the Fab Four, Liverpool’s finest export.
Beetle Mania Deluxe showcases some very superb graphics and is played out over five reels and just 10 paylines. It has the usual premium and high-quality look of a Novomatic game that some players may find a little boring but there’s a particular consistency here and you always know what you’re getting.
Before joining these cute critters on their adventure, you need to alter your bets. By clicking on "Lines +/-" you would regulate the number of lines to bet. Coins size can be adjusted by clicking on "Bet +/-". "Gamble" button will activate the gambling feature, and if you click on "Autoplay" the reels will start turning automatically until you decide to stop them. "Start" button will start the reels turning.
As previously mentioned, this game is inspired by beetles the bugs, not the Beatles band, and lovers of cartoon graphics would absolutely appreciate the pun and presentation of this game. The colors used are identical to the colors used on most fruit-themed slot games, but the primary difference is this slot is far more complex than fruit-themed slots. Beetle Mania Deluxe features bugs playing jazz music that would you would either find catchy or totally annoying.
While Beetle Mania Deluxe lacks innovative bonus features, its most endearing element is that you can land some pretty huge wins here especially if you are lucky enough to land the Beetle in the middle reel during free spins. This is a medium variance slot, which means the huge wins don’t hit as often as you’d want, but it actually pays out really well once they do.
Apart from the low value playing cards symbols there are a range of cute characters to brighten your day and these include a cheerful bumblebee, a grumpy worm, a smiling snail and a happy butterfly that is also the wild symbol.
There’s a blue musical note as the scatter and during the feature there’s also a ladybird that adds a little extra.
10 free spins are the order of the day here and to earn them, you’ll need to land three, four or five of the musical note scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You can kick things off by pressing the “Start” button and this is where the ladybird comes in handy. If it lands on the center reel during the spins, you would receive a prize equal to the amount you have already won during the feature (up to a limit of 100,000x your line bet). Obviously, it’s best if the ladybird lands towards the end of the spins but it’s all pot luck.
